Nyack Snow Park

Nyack Snow Park is right off Interstate 80 at Emigrant Gap, directly across from the Nyack General Store and Shell Service Station. The Snow Park has a variety of short, gentle slopes, best suited for young children. Everyone brings their own plastic sleds, saucers, and tubes to enjoy the hills. Riders walk back up the slopes, bringing their sled with them. Nearby is room for those who want to build a snowman or make snow angels.

Patrons are allowed to bring their own BBQs and set them up in the parking lot. Right across the parking lot are a number of services, including a general store, gas station, and Burger King. Because Nyack is at 5,340 feet, lower than most neighboring snow play areas, it is wise to check on the snow conditions there before planning your trip.
